As a next step to its $16 million investment, ABB in Canada broke ground for the expansion of its Installation Products plant in Pointe-Claire, Quebec.

The facility will expand by 30,000 sq. ft to 65,000 sq. ft and once completed in 2024 will create more than 40 new jobs. 

Increased production capacity will better meet Canada’s growing demand for safe, smart, and sustainable electrification solutions. 

“ABB’s investment is part of a five-year strategy to integrate new digital processes and automation across our operations,” said Matthias Heilmann, president, ABB Installation Products Division, at the 2021 announcement of the $16M investment. “With our customer-first approach, this enables us to further innovate our products and manufacturing capabilities to meet the specific needs of the Canadian market.”

In Canada, ABB has a strong history of excellence stretching back more than 100 years. With its Canadian corporate headquarters in Montreal, ABB’s success is driven by 3,000 talented employees in 32 locations from coast to coast.

Part of its Electrification Business Area, ABB Installation Products Division, formerly Thomas & Betts, is a global leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of products used to manage the connection, protection and distribution of electrical power in industrial, construction and utility applications. With more than 200,000 products under 38-plus premium brand names, ABB Installation Products solutions can be found wherever electricity is used.
